Looking For A Life Insurance Policy?
To be guided on the decision of which life insurance cover you need there are some factors that must be considered.
Determine how much cover you need. This guide is especially for those who are doing it on their own without professional assistance. To best explain and calculate these, inflation, time and the value of money will not be taken into consideration.
It is good to consider if there is any financial requirement that has to be paid off in case of any unfortunate incident like permanent or total disability or premature death or terminal illness. Those that in the list of what should be paid off include mortgage loan repayments, business or personal debts among others.
Establish if there is anybody who is financially supported. Among them are children, spouses or aged parents. In case there are in existence it is advised that a plan is designed to continue supporting them should an unfortunate incident happen. An example here would be if the person who has met the premature death for example had intended to support the aged parents or kids or the spouse for no less than 20 years the yearly sum is $20,000. $400,000 is the sum assured which will be required at this time.
If a person who has taken the insurance life cover meets with an unfortunate incident it is good to establish if there is any financial gift to be given. Sometimes there are people who would like to give some financial gift when they are deceased. Charitable and sometimes children homes could be in this list of being rewarded with financial gift. Factoring the above will help a person to decide the type of life insurance cover they would want to take.
To tackle income replacement you notice that there are tricky questions on this issue. The reason why this question not to be straight forward and so is the answer is the wrong estimate of a person’s total income growth rate. However there is a thumb rule for this and that is it is important to know the number of years that your income is to be replaced. Replacing income for ten years means that the assured amount is $500,000 with a current salary of $50,000. Hence it will be possible to withdraw a total of $50,000 annually for ten years.
Determine the length of the insurance cover so that you can know the different life and best insurance covers that are available. It is good to first establish if insurance premiums will be paid comfortable and only then can you calculate the insurance premiums and the length of cover of the insured sum.
